Asamoah, Agyemang-Badu and Duncan to be tested of COVID-19 in May before Serie A restarts

Players in the Serie A including the Ghanaian contingent will be tested for COVID-19 next month before the season restarts.

The Italian serie A has been on suspension since March 9 following the spread of the coronavirus, with the European country being one of the hardest hit after thousands of death recorded.

Inter Milan's Kwadwo Asamoah, Hellas Verona's Emmanuel Agyemang Badu and Fiorentina's Alfred Duncan are all expected to be tested before the season continues.

President of the federation revealed there are plans for testing to commence in May.

"As soon as the conditions are right, we'll finish the championship," said federation president Gabriele Gravina.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, he added: "Soon, there will be a meeting. We will establish the procedure which we will then communicate.

"We will start, I hope, at the beginning of May with tests to ensure that players are negative and training can follow.

"Will we play through the summer? We don't have a deadline but the idea is to finish the championships."
